Meal ideas for mom

I work full time in the food business. For more than three decades, my days have centered on food ­— from wrangling recipes and groceries, to ingredient research, to tastings in a test kitchen. So when the kids ask what I want for Mother’s Day, the answer is simple: Cook for me.

In the Garden: Garden allies

The natural reaction of most humans when confronted with an unknown wasp or stinging insect is to be suspicious and even a little nervous.

Add creativity to school lunches

Miriam Widenham has always had a creative side. So when this Fresno, Calif., mom ran across some photos on social media of whimsical children’s school lunches, she decided to give it a try.

Creative, tech-savvy couple creates a hip home

PITTSBURGH — Chris Harrison and his wife, Amy Ogan, honed their creative problem-solving and critical thinking skills while earning doctorates in human computer interaction at Carnegie Mellon University.

In the Garden: Branch out for Arbor Day this year

Trees are an essential part of the urban environment. Think of the Greater Wenatchee area with only sagebrush, rabbit brush and native grasses. It is not as appealing, is it? Because the trees we have planted moderate the summer heat with shade, break the cold winter winds, and clean the air of dust.

One of the drawbacks of getting older is that time brings an increasing accumulation of things. These things litter all kinds of spare space — drawers, shelves, closets and spare rooms. Nearly all of it is clutter. It’s not stuff you really want, but yet it’s hard to figure out what do to with it.

Use alternatives for yard waste

Unseasonably warm weather has many of us poking around in our gardens. That yard debris you didn’t get to last fall may be calling to you.

In the Garden: Garden mistakes

I want to share a mistake I made several years ago that I didn’t realize was a mistake until last summer. I like to call this “Wrong plant; wrong place.” (This was before I learned the Master Gardener mantra: Right plant; right place.)

In the Garden: Ornamental grasses can add zip to your garden

Dependable, easy care ornamental grasses are top-notch candidates for year-around interest. The majority are prized for their airy, graceful shapes that shimmer with just a hint of breeze. It’s an interesting group of mostly trouble-free plants with many that thrive in our climate.
